New Albany, IN (PRWEB) May 06, 2014
Dr. Ronald Receveur, who practices in New Albany, Ind., across the Ohio River from Louisville, Ky., is endorsing a less-invasive, quicker-healing procedure for patients with receding gums.
Using the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™), invented and patented by John Chao, D.D.S., dentists are able to offer an incision- and stitches-free solution.
Through a small needle hole, a dentist uses special tools to gently loosen the gum tissue and slide it over the receded part of the tooth. Since there is no cut or stitching, patients can don’t have traditional symptoms of pain, swelling and bleeding.
Receveur said patients have been asking his advice on the new procedure as it becomes more widely publicized, as it has in recent programs on the major television networks.
“Receding gums are actually loss of gum tissue along the gumline as a result of periodontal disease, aging process or abrasive teeth-brushing habits,” Dr. Receveur said. “This means the teeth’s root structure is exposed and decay can occur below the gumline.”
Since healthy gums are crucial for a healthy mouth, treating gum recession is necessary for lasting dental health, he said.
Traditionally, treating teeth with receding gums meant a connective tissue graft. This technique called for cutting tissue from the roof of the mouth, sewing that wound, and then placing the donor tissue at the site of the gum recession. The graft tissue was stitched to the overlying gum tissue. Healing usually took about three weeks.
With the pinhole technique, 95 percent of patients are completely satisfied within one week.
Dr. Receveur completes extensive continuing education, receiving more than 5,000 hours of postgraduate training. He has advanced certifications in Comprehensive, Implant, Restorative, Sedation and Aesthetic Dentistry, so he can provide the most current dentistry to his Louisville and New Albany dental patients.
Dr. Receveur, one of Louisville’s best cosmetic dentists, provides smile dental care such as teeth cleanings, fillings, crowns, extractions and root canals. He also provides more advanced implant and cosmetic dentistry like veneers, teeth whitening, dental implants in one day, dental implants in one hour, All on Six and All on Four dental implants, bone grafting, and sinus lifts, all with IV sedation dentistry.
Dr. Receveur, a native of New Albany, graduated from Indiana University Southeast with honors in chemistry. He earned his doctorate from the Indiana University School of Dentistry in Dental Surgery.
Dr. Receveur has been providing cosmetic, implant and reconstructive dentistry solutions to Southern Indiana and Greater Louisville residents since 1981.
